Biography

Digital Kid is quite simply one of the most exciting talents in hard dance right now. 2006 has seen him become one of the most sought-after producers, remixers and DJs in the scene. He has had over 70 of his innovative, fresh-sounding productions released on labels across the world and across the dance music spectrum in just 2 years, a virtually unprecedented feat in the hard dance scene. He is one of the most versatile artists in the game, with his trademark funky techno sound supported by classically-styled hard house, twisted hard trance and filthed-up electro. These stunning productions have received support from the likes of Radio1, Galaxy FM, Carl Cox, The Tidy Boys, Trevor Rockcliffe, Fergie, Kutski and many others.

Having been sucked into the world of DJing at the tender age of 12, Digital Kid didn?t start producing until the year 2000. Rather than rushing out a load of half-baked material, he perfected his art before unleashing a slew of productions on the world in a short space of time. This cunning move ensured that his name was soon on everyones lips. Every label from Tidy to Deprived of Funk to Toolbox to Nuklear Puppy to Oblivion has snapped up his works, and he engineered and co-produced with the likes of Amber D, Alex Calver, Fausto, Little Gem, Jon Doe and Alex Kidd. Worldwide recognition for his work has begun, with labels in Australia, Austria, Holland, USA, Canada all releasing his tracks. He also runs 3 labels : Infekted (funky techno), Beat Teknique (various techy bits) and Ordeo Digital (funky hard house), showcasing the full spectrum of his hard beats. His sound is tough, uncompromising, groovy, and laden with tons of high-impact samples. It?s underground hard dance at its best.

Aside from his illustrious production career, the Kid has been smacking dancefloors left right and centre across the UK recently. Hes played for all the big boys since breaking through – Tidy Weekender, Frantic, Nu Religion, HeatUK, Polysexual, Bounce2This, Extreme Euphoria, Storm and Tasty all booking him in 2006. Hes a resident for Nuclear Audio in Liverpool and Digital Fusion in London, and has played at two of Canadas biggest hard dance clubs – Tainted and Digitalized. His groove-filled sets have stood out in an era when hard trance is omnipresent and the need for fresh sounds is more important than ever. His tight, quickfire, chopped-up mixing always keeps the clubbers on their toes.

Digital Kid has been one of the most refreshing and important artists to emerge this year. His contribution to the hard dance scene has already been invaluable and the future looks safe in his hands…

Digital Kid always knows how to set a night on fire with his infectious blend of groovy, chunky beats. As a promoter Im always happy to book him. He is fresh and what the scene needs right now. His produtions are enough to make any budding producer green with envy…one for the future – Garbo, Storm

Digital Kid is without doubt one of the fastest rising stars in the industry. His productions are the future of hard dance music. I play at least one Digital Kid production in all my sets. Hes keeping it real! – Jimmy Dean, X-Static
